Stadium Events NES NTSC Cart Sold Sept. 8, 2010 for $1255.00 USD.

I met the owner of this cart at the Tetris World Championship where he gave me the inside scoop on finding this game.  I’m going to respect his confidence by not disclosing exactly where he found it.  However, he did find it as a random retro video game shop.  According to him, he got it for something like $10.  Bringing it up the the register, he was sure that the owner, who was plenty game savvy, would recognize the game as being rare and reprice it.  Apparently the title had just slipped under owner’s radar, and the guy sold him the game.  He, it does sort of look like a worthless sports game, doesn’t it?  Moral of the story, go check your local video game shops…you never know.

Death Race by Exidy Arcade Game Flyer Sold Sept. 4, 2010 for $14.99 USD.

If you’ve never played Death Race, it’s an experience in itself. You drive a car using an arcade steering wheel with the purpose of running over skeletons.  Each time you do, it leaves behind a tomb stone.  The skeletons are pretty quick little guys, so its trickier than it sounds.  As innocent as that sounds by today’s standards, when I played it for the first time, it was undeniably creepy.  I can only imagine the reaction when this game first came out.
